. as you know, that has always been a controversial issue in the united states house of representatives and no less so today. if that measure passes, then it is believed that a great number of sort of moderate democrats could then get on board with the idea of this health care reform bill. and we have right now congressman joe wilson from south carolina who is standing by. congressman, we may have to break out of this, if the president comes out. i know you'll understand, but tell me very quickly, what are you hearing on the floor today about the status of this legislation? >> well, it's really up to the blue dogs, are they going to be independent or are they going to be lap dogs and take directions from speaker pelosi. today is going to be the crucial day. people will find out. persons who said they're blue dogs, are they blue or lap dogs. >> brian: and you have proposed a motion that would basically make members of congress take the so-called public or government option, if that becomes the law of the land. do you think that will have any legs? >> it should, i was able to get the man
for the senate he opposes the idea to bring them to the united states in part because he thinks he is going to make illinois a terror target. i talked to a national security expert who has been in the years. he laughed at that. he said look, are you kidding me. terrorists go for high value targets, big places like new york and washington as we saw on 9/11. they're not going for a town in 500. he laughed and said, are you kidding. that is going to be among the safest places in the world because there is only 500 premium. am i right? >> that was the first thing i thought of. terrorism is about the unexpected. major impacts from this. if there is going to be one safe place in america, it will be that town. >> gregg: congressman brown, it doesn't make sense in many ways? >> you are misconstruing what mark kirk is saying. he is saying it's going to bring terrorist attacks to america, like chicago and new york city. we're going to showcase these people, freedom hating cold-blooded murderers, the worst to the shores of the united states. these aren't criminals, they are enemy combatants. anybody t
of the evidence is tossed out and if they moved to the united states, what is the overall impact for the country, really, in terms of overall security? not just in terms of housing them, but, their ability to recruit jihadists? >> jamie, all of these moves are a dramatic and tragic retreat in the war against terrorism. when you go back to a pre-9/11 mentality, where we are treating these as a criminal justice matter, rather than acts of war. and after 9/11 that is why we set up the tribunals and set up the whole idea of interrogations. for instance, if we captured khalid sheikh mohammed, in 2003, as we did, and read him his miranda rights, as we'd be required to do now, to have the trials go forward, thousands of innocent lives would have been lost because we obtained intelligence from him, we obtained information which saved so many lives and what we are doing is saying we are not out to get intelligence or information, we are out to have a criminal justice-type proceeding and reading people their rights and allow them -- various risks they can bring and legal protections an american citizen wo

thoughts, first of all, about this decision to bring these key gitmo detainees to the united states for trial in new york city? >> it's a phenomenally bad decision on many, many levels and i suspect a decision based on a mix of politics and a desire to pander to, sort of the self-righteous liberal, setting the stage and putting the bush-cheney years on trial again. it's in a sense, i think what we're unfortunately about to do is open up years of a side show here in new york that's going to be very painful and also, going to be very damaging ultimately. it's going to provide a great deal of public relations spin to our adversaries overseas. >> i know you talked to people inside the intelligence community, the place where you once worked. how are they responding about this? >> well, the good thing about the cia, they just march on. they just get on with it. and regardless of what administration is there, that's the job that they do. i think, unfortunately, look, from a security standpoint, when we-- there have been some talk, even since holder's decision that bringing mohammed and the

in the coming weeks. >> what about trade? is there any movement so far? has the united states delegation been able to iron anything out on that front? >> reporter: no, it hasn't. it's really a curious clash of rhetoric with reality. the president in his speech in japan yesterday talked about u.s. advocacy, or trade throughout this entire region. but there is a pending free trade agreement in america right now with south korea. it was negotiated in june of 2007. it's been sitting there waiting for action. the last two of the bush administration, well into the first year of the obama administration, it would be the biggest free trade agreement the united states has with any other nation since nafta. it would add u.s. trade representatives ten to $12 billion to the gdp. but because the obama administration wants more access for the u.s. auto makers, south koreans aren't high on that. that agreement is stalled and there has been no efforts here, no visible effort for the obama administration to bring the two nations any closer on that free trade pact. others could commence and follow after that.
